On Tuesday we were in Michigan for an in-studio performance at JQ99.3 FM . We got up early to visit Chris and Emilee and their morning show. We met these guys at Unity Festival this past year and they had begun spinning our music (rocking independent artists… who needs a label? heheh).  We had a lot of laughs with them! Here’s some videos where you get to know the story of Reilly a little better and see some special acoustic performances of Limited Time and Wake Us Up.

All in all a great weekend.  We had a nice little Wisconsin and Michigan swing. We drove out to Wisconsin for a college show at St. Norberts where we rocked for 3 hours, then played at Green Bay favorite Cup O Joy, and then headed to Milwaukee to catch up with a youth group that we spent time with this summer at their Myrtle Beach retreat.  Saw many familiar and friendly faces in Wisconsin. We love the cheese state. Michigan show last night was great too!

Catch us at one of our last headlining shows on our Around the World Autumn Tour. New York, New Jersey, Tennessee, Florida, North Carolina. And then we hit the road with BarlowGirl!

It’s about Love.

One death to pay the price
One Love to give us life.

These are the lyrics to “Around the World”

The bibles says that the reason Jesus died on the cross and rose again on our behalf was love. “For God so LOVED the world that he gave his only son, that whosoever believes in him (Jesus) will not perish but have everlasting life.” The scriptures also define what love is… in 1 Corinthians, chapter 13: Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.

In the bible we also see the greatest demonstration of love through Jesus Christ. “Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.”

God’s relentless love. This is the message of the bible. God’s love is endless and was fully demonstrated in life, death, and resurrection of Christ. As followers of Christ, we, REILLY, are committed to living in a way that pleases him and reflects his character to our spheres of influence.

It’s about love. Jesus says the two greatest commandments are: to LOVE the Lord God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength and to LOVE your neighbor as yourself. Can you imagine how the world would be if we did that? Or even if we did ONE of those: LOVE your neighbor as yourself?

REILLY’s One Love to Give Us Life campaign is about Love. We are rejoicing and celebrating the truth that Jesus loves us with great love (he laid down his life for us). Yes, Jesus wants us to embrace and accept his love through faith…but he also wants us to spread his love to others through our actions…so that people can see him in us.

That’s why we’ve designed the One Love campaign. It’s a way for us to love our neighbors all around the world by contributing to the supplying of their needs.  $1 from every “Around the World” album you purchase goes to support a new ministry/organization every month.  Learn more about the organizations here: http://www.reillytheband.com/onelove .
